    The internet is massive. Millions of websites, billions of pages… Access to almost everything humanity knows about everything. But for all the good the internet has in it, there is a lot of bad.

    Help. Please.

    I want you to sit back and think of your greatest fear. Whether its spiders, heights, the apocalypse, needles or something else. Think of how you feel when confronted with that fear. Your heart races, you can’t seem to catch your breath. Your world seems to be closing in as you focus on that fear. Now imagine being confronted with that fear every single day, but never getting used to it. There are people who experience that daily. People all around the world who suffer from the symptoms of anxiety. Some can’t handle the feeling of being in a crowd, some can’t handle being alone, still others can’t handle a…

    10 Things you can learn from a child

    We all have children in our lives, even if they’re not our own. We pass them on our way to the office, or see them at family reunions. I believe there is a lot we can learn from these children. I’ve compiled a list of some of the most important lessons we can learn from them. Accept Everyone – Kids love everyone, no matter how different they are. Kids don’t see race, disability, or anything else. They love everyone unconditionally. I wish everyone was more like that. It’s okay to ask for help – Kids are willing to try almost anything, but they’re not afraid to ask for help when…

    Enjoying the beauty of life

    When I was young, my Great Grandmother told me something that stuck with me, “Find the beauty in everything, because life is short, and you never know when you won’t be able to appreciate it anymore.” As a 7 year old, I didn’t really grasp the meaning of those words, but as I got older, and I saw friends and relatives losing their lives due to illness and unforeseen circumstances, those words because a motto for me. In our society, it’s easy to become cynical and petty, to judge others based on their clothing or their awkwardness, to ignore the little things in favor of concentrating on the big picture,…

    Memories of my father

    Today would have been my dads birthday, and so I wanted to share with you a few memories I have of him. My earliest memory of my dad is from when I was very young, wrestling in the living room of my old house. He would always let me think I was winning, and then finish everything off by tickling me. I remember one time when I was about 5 or 6, and my dad was burning a wasps nest he found in our back yard, and one of the wasps landed on my head. My dad smacked it, but not before it had stung me. He taught me to…

    If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree…

    Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree it will spend its whole life believing it is stupid -Albert Einstein Today I want to talk about geniuses. When you think of a genius you usually think of someone like Einstein or Stephen Hawking, great minds who have changed the world of science. But there is more to genius than just an understanding of science. Einstein himself said that everyone is a genius. I think what Einstein was getting at was the fact that everyone has a unique skill set, everyone has at least one thing they can do better than most…

    How to change the world: a beginners guide

    So, you want to change the world? If that’s the case, let me tell you something: It’s impossible. You cannot change the people around you. The key to changing the world lies in changing yourself, in breaking your own selfish habits and doing what you can to make the world a better place. I was reading an article in the newspaper yesterday about a woman who has dedicated hundreds of hours to volunteering. When asked why she said it was because she had come to the realization that her world is made better by volunteers, and that she should be contributing to that as well, to better the lives of…
